Lesson 1: Understanding Personal Information

Personal information is any data that can be used to identify you. This would include things like your name, mailing address, phone number, or credit card information. Personal information is valuable to hackers as it can be used to steal your identity or gain access to accounts. Hacking for personal information can be done through malicious software, phishing emails, or any other malicious means of accessing a person’s personal and sensitive information.

Having your personal information compromised can have serious consequences. For example, someone could impersonate you to gain access to bank accounts or other sensitive information. Furthermore, your personal information is valuable in the eyes of criminals, who may use it to commit illegal activities. It’s important to take steps to protect your personal information from unauthorized access.
